Hello Nest47, Thank you for taking the time to review our little property. Our company culture is to provide quality, affordability and great customer service to our guests and from reading your review, we have succeeded in doing these things for you. Our entire staff, from front desk agents to our room attendants and maintenance, take great pride in their work and love seeing remarks such as yours, so THANK YOU!! We're glad that you found our continental breakfast satisfactory. While under going renovations, the City of San Diego only allows us to serve prepackaged items so, we have searched for the best options and variety possible to offer our guests during this time. Since your son attends school here at SDSU, we hope you'll visit us again soon! And again after our renovations are completed. Call us direct for the best price, selection and service! Yours In Hospitality, Michelle C.
